Penny Paint Pet Portraits, PPF

Penny Paints Pet Portraits

This week's New Art is all about Dogs


"Orion" 6x6 on wood panel, SOLD
He was painted for a challenge on DPW, to paint what brings you JOY.  Animals always bring me joy.  Especially when they smile.

Another painting of "Jackson"
I did this one on a 5x7 wood panel 3/4" deep, and painted it black around the edge on all sides. Jackson is a long-haired Chihuahua with an appealing grin, and loving personality  The painting can sit on a shelf without a frame.  SFA. Small Fine Art.
I have a ledge all around the room where I can display my art pieces.

and last but not least, "Dillon"

This was done on a 6x6 wrapped canvas, finished around the edge with continuous painting of the subject. A long haired scruffy dog, up close and personal. The painting can be displayed on a shelf or hung on the wall without a frame. Small Format Art. SFA. Original, one of a kind, not a print. Painted from a reference photo of Dillon, posted by Rob on Paint My Photo.
